Based on sophisticated oil-gas fired boilers production experience, our WNSL sries oil-gas fired boilers are used for ecological power generation through years of cooperation with famous domestic scientific research institutions and universities. Based on the operation data of the company’s existing oil-gas fired boilers, we have developed the latest condensing oil-gas fired boilers which is high-efficient, energy-saving and environmental friendly. The latent heat of vaporization is recovered by using a large amount of water vapor contained in the flue gas after natural gas combustion, so as to improve the boiler efficiency to more than 100%. Suitable for natural gas, light oil, heavy oil and other fuels, it is widely used in garment factories, hospitals, schools, hotels, pharmaceutical factories, food factories, beverage factories, rubber factories, chemical plants, paper factories, building materials industry, etc. With the advantageous features of boiler such as high efficiency, energy saving and environmental protection, it is favored by more and more enterprises. Sifang Boiler has built a professional oil and gas furnace production line, which realizes the automation of boilers from feeding to processing, welding and then assembling, ensuring the quality of boiler products as well as the production cycle, escorting for the scale production of enterprises.

Generally speaking, under the premise of the same evaporation capacity, although the purchase price of electric heating steam generator equipment is cheap, the operation cost of gas steam generator is relatively low, and the use cost of natural gas is one third of that of electricity (the electricity charge is 1 yuan per kilowatt hour). If the equipment works for a long time and the steam consumption is large, it can be said that gas steam generator is more cost-effective.

Data shows that one ton of electric heating steam generator consumes 720 kilowatt hours of electricity per hour, and two tons of electric heating steam generator consumes 2 * 720=1440 kilowatt hours of electricity per hour. If the industrial electricity is calculated at 1 yuan per hour, the operating cost of two tons of inspection free electric heating steam generator per hour is 1440 yuan.

The 2-ton gas generator consumes 150-160 cubic meters of natural gas per hour. The operating cost of 2-ton gas generator per hour is 150 * 3=450 yuan based on 3 yuan per cubic meter (different prices in each place).

Therefore, in terms of economy, gas steam generator is more energy-saving than electric steam generator, with lower operating cost, and can generally meet the conventional production needs.

Compared with gas steam generator, the thermal efficiency of electric heating steam generator is much higher. The resistance heating element can directly transfer heat to water to achieve high heat conversion rate. Improving the thermal efficiency is also a way to reduce fuel consumption. Moreover, electricity is a clean energy, saving the installation of energy-saving devices and emission sensors, which can reduce the purchase cost and use cost.

We also need to take into account the situation that when a certain steam equipment is used in a place with very strict requirements for pollution emissions, even if you want to choose a gas steam generator at this time, you can't do it. After all, environmental problems may follow later, and even increase the use cost.

Therefore, it cannot be directly determined whether the electric steam generator or gas steam generator is cost-effective. Environmental protection, electricity charges, steam demand, equipment use frequency, etc. are all conditions we need to refer to.
